The decision to terminate their marriage was “amicable”
deadmau5 (Joel Zimmerman) has announced on social media today that after 3.5 years of marriage, deadmau5 and his wife, Kelly Zimmerman, are legally separating. The decision may come as a shock to many but to both deadmau5 and his wife, the separation was ‘amicable.’ deadmau5 disclosed on social media that the reason for the split was due to both individuals choosing different paths in life. This is what both deadmau5 and his now ex-wife Kelly Zimmerman had to say about the split,
“We have chosen different paths in life, and I am forever grateful for the time we spent together,” said Joel Zimmerman. “We wish each other well and are parting with love and mutual respect,” adds Kelly Zimmerman.
Joel Zimmerman proposed to Kelly back in 2016, after the American DJ posted a picture of a real estate saleswoman wearing an engagement ring while the two were vacationing in the Maldives. The wedding was held the following year in 2017, which featured various pyrotechnics from his live shows, red smoke, and countless amounts of candles and flowers.
We wish both Joel and Kelly nothing but continuous happiness and success as the two begin to start the next chapter of their lives.
